A swift, brutal, and thoroughly competent actioner that doesn't balk at a bit of bloodletting. Arriving between parts one and two of Twilight's interminable swan song Breaking Dawn, nothing could be more welcome.
Selene's return is a welcome one as far as I'm concerned, and if the Death Dealer feels the need to dole out some more justice a couple of years hence that possibility wouldn't bother me in the least bit whatsoever.
Kate Beckinsale looks great and she certainly can "off" werewolves like nobody's business. But, the "Underworld" films are all pretty much alike, lots of action with a throwaway story. "Awakening" is no different. Paul Chambers, CNN.
The reason the Underworld series works is Kate Beckinsale's portrayal of the all black clad, baddass Vampire Selene is just cool. She doesn't whine, moan, or sparkle she just kicks the butt of anyone who screws her over.
